SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SEFE, Inc. (OTCBB: SEFE.OB) (“SEFE”) (“The Company”) today revealed details about another critical component in its innovative Harmony III atmospheric energy system. The Atmospheric Energy Collector is a proprietary invention that puts the Company one step closer to bringing its revolutionary technology into reality within the $300 billion-plus clean energy industry.
Following on the heels of this week's announcements about patents secured for an Atmospheric Static Electricity Collector and Dynamic Electrical Converter System, the collector reflects the Company's strategy of staking out a strong intellectual property position within the atmospheric energy realm -- offering protection for the technology as well as increasing value for shareholders. Overall, the Company has 26 patents in various stages of approval with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).
"As these pieces come together, we continue to move the science forward," said Don Johnston, CEO of SEFE. "As the first and only company in a position to exploit atmospheric energy, and particularly with the launch of our new Science and Technology Center in Boulder, we're in the process of designing and testing the exclusive technologies that will take us into the next phase."
The Atmospheric Energy Collector, assigned pending patent 13/103,963 by the USPTO, includes a windsock arrangement that has a large upwind opening on one side tapering to a small downwind opening on the other side. The upwind side is secured to a tether made from an electrically conducting material. The windsock, extended outward by wind, collects the atmospheric energy and transfers it to the tether. This patent was filed with the USPTO on May 9, 2011.
“The processes involved with the operation of SEFE’s Harmony units are often as important as the physical inventions themselves," said Michael Hurowitz, SEFE’s Director of Engineering. "Our team works quickly to protect our new intellectual property in order to increase value for our shareholders, as well as secure market opportunities for SEFE.”
